Stand Up (to Bullies)

Children's Song Lyrics and Sound Clip
Caroline Figiel and Danny Jones

  Listen to this song.

This song is available Caroline and Danny's "Street Smarts"

It was a dark day, when they strolled into school
The kids were nervous and felt like fools
‘Cause everyone knew one thing was clear
With bullies around, trouble was near

Nobody spoke -- afraid of a scene
Then this big bad bunch began to do their thing

Chorus:
What makes a bully pick a fight?
What makes a rattlesnake coil and strike?
It really doesn’t matter, the poison you choose
With plans in your pocket, you’ll know what to do
Stand up, stand up for yourself

No kid was safe from these tough guys
The bullies picked on ‘em, teased ‘em ‘till they cried
It wasn’t long before their pride was gone
The bullies just laughed though they knew they were wrong

From out of nowhere the smallest kid came
Nobody knew him, not even his name.

Chorus:
What makes a bully pick a fight?
What makes a rattlesnake coil and strike?
It really doesn’t matter, the poison you choose
With plans in your pocket, you’ll know what to do
Stand up, stand up for yourself

These mean guys laughed and ripped the kid’s shirt
But this little kid refused to be hurt
He stood and looked ‘em straight in the eye
Daring those bullies to even come try

There was no way they could hurt his pride
If he would find his strength from inside

Chorus

Something happened no one could expect
By finding courage, he’d found his respect
Stand up, stand up for yourself.

Chorus
